Not disgraced in a Punchestown maiden hurdle in October but well beaten on his return at Leopardstown last week; probably wants better ground and others look more likely.

Poor performer on the Flat; made errors when tailed off in a maiden hurdle on debut in this sphere but there was a bit more promise when sixth of 11 (beaten 24l) at Punchestown in October; needs to build on that now; off 146 days.

Form & Verdict
Remote second first time out at Down Royal in October; probably ran to the same sort of level when fourth at Thurles; raced keenly, did not jump well, and showed a tendency to hang to the left at Limerick.

Distant second when 80-1 for her debut at Down Royal and ran to the same sort of level when fourth at Thurles since, finishing a bit closer; this is tougher though.

Doyen mare is closely related to Hughie Morrison-trained bumper/hurdle/chase winner Sister Sybil and to point winner Minella Style; best of the remainder behind wide-margin winner Mighty Potter first time out at Down Royal; form probably best assessed with reference to the fourth Getupthemstairs who has been placed since.
